Subject: Women and Sarah Palin
We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since
the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for
the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible (?) decision has
surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce on the
part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate that has a
real possibility of becoming fact.
Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms.
Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for
ourselves and for our present or future daughters. To date, she is
against sex education, birth control, the pro-choice platform,
environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of
speech, gun control, the separation of church and state, and polar
bears -- to say nothing of her complete lack of real preparation to

that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over
We want to disagree, publicly. If you agree that Palin is an
irresponsible, even dangerous, choice for VP, please consider
participating in this drive. Gentlemen, send this to the women you
know and care for. I know it's tough to understand the way this choice
is impacting women, but I have never seen so many women so outraged,
angry and distraught in my entire life. We'd like our voices heard.
If you agree, PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY! If you send this to 20 women in
the next hour, you could be blessed with a country that takes your
concerns? Seriously. Stranger things have happened.
